Is laptop RAM backwards compatible?


Hello, I am going to upgrade the ram in my laptop from 512MB (2x256) to 1 gb. The RAM i have now is cas 3 pc2700. Is pc3200 ram backwards compatible? It is a about the same price and I figure i might as well buy faster ram in case i want to use it in my other system later. what do you think?

py pc2700 is running at 2100, so i dont see why your 3200 wouldnt run 2700. it should be fine, unless your specific laptop is a booger. and i believe there are a few that are, check the service manual for your specific one if you can find it. also a post in the laptops section might yield more results.

all ram that is of the same type (ie DDR DDR2, SDram) is backwards compatible. The system will just downclock it.
